The short of it:
I’ve been getting blue screens while gaming. I believe its a hardware problem. I decided to test my ram first. I've been trying to boot memtest86 from my USB drive to test my ram first. The drive is wrote correctly using the included tool. When I boot from the USB I get this screen View: https://imgur.com/CwC8Xuz
Once it reaches the final line in the picture, my computer instantly powers off and restarts Win10. I haven't even made it into the actual memory test yet.

If it is crashing on the processor test, could it be the processor is bad? Or am I just doing something wildly wrong?
